Biafra political activist, Nnamdi Kanu has branded the quest for Southern Presidency "diversionary", AllNews reports.
Kanu, the self-exiled leader of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said this on his known Twitter handle on Friday.
According to the 53-year-old, "the transitory allure of power shift to the South has blinded Southern politicians to how far gone Nigeria has become islamized".
Kanu, therefore, insists that "a Southern President will always be impotent".
The quest for Southern Presidency is diversionary. The transitory allure of power shift to the South has blinded Southern politicians to how far gone Nigeria has become Fulanized & Islamized, all to the degree that a Southern President will always be impotent.

This newspaper understands that Kanu is advocating for the dissolution of Nigeria, as against the goal of some Southern politicians who believe a Nigerian presidency coming to the South-East in 2023 will be in the region's best interest.
